Celtic have had a bid of around the £3m mark for the midfielder accepted by Motherwell and have been holding talks with his representatives.

The report claims that Celtic have withdrawn from the race to sign him after they failed to agree personal terms with the midfielder.

They matched an offer of £3m plus £250,000 in add-ons from Celtic that Motherwell accepted last week.

Player of the Day, England vs Afghanistan: Eoin Morgan
Morgan hit 17 sixes in his career-best 148, with England's total of 25 sixes also a new world record. Morgan himself had an early stroke of luck when he was dropped on 28 by Dawlat Zadran in the deep.

Reported Celtic target Turnbull, who came through the youth ranks at the North Lanarkshire side, was free to talk to other clubs in January with his contract due to expire in the summer but the Scotland Under-21 worldwide did a U-turn and penned a new deal until 2021.

The 19-year-old was thought to be joining Celtic, but the Glasgow giants reportedly pulled out after refusing to meet the player's wage demands, according to the Scottish Daily Record.

Celtic were understood to have offered Turnbull a contract worth in the region of £10,000 per week and released a statement on Friday, describing it as a "magnificent" offer.
